Dean Phillips on Principles & Values



Part of informal Jewish caucus when need arises

When tensions flare up in the Middle East or a visiting Israeli dignitary wants to meet with American lawmakers, Congress' informal Jewish caucus springs into action. "There is increasingly a need for Jewish members to convene," said Phillips, citing a rise in antisemitic hate crimes. "It is not a group with an agenda or a predetermined meeting schedule. It's really as necessary," said Phillips.

Don't amplify "America First Caucus" about hate & ignorance

Don't say the names of the people joining the "America First Caucus". Don't amplify their hate and ignorance. Don't share their propaganda and enhance their fundraising. They are as relevant or irrelevant as WE make them. Ignorance isn't bliss, but it's better than amplification.

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Phillips voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
